National Vote Women

Campaign pushing votes for women launches in Vanuatu

The campaign is organised by the Vanuatu Civil Society Influencing Network which is aiming to vote women into 50 percent of parliament's seats.

Vote Woman Campaign coordinator Naomi Malau says her team is confident the initiative will help bring major changes for Malampa Province and the country.

The Daily Post newspaper reports that Vanuatu is among only four countries in the world with no women representative in parliament.

In the 39 years since Vanuatu gained independence, only four women have been elected to parliament.
